Well, Vivian had a very good night last night. It was quiet which was good for both Vivian and me. It can get a little nerve-wracking for mom too, and it did yesterday afternoon when I left for an hour and returned and Vivian was having blood pressure issues.
This morning at 8:15am Dr. Davis was here to close Vivian's chest. She tolerated the procedure very well. In other words her heart handled the new and normal pressure of a closed sternum!
She has to get a couple of line replacements today and otherwise just rest. We will be in the PICU for another week to two weeks. I am hoping the majority of our stay will be the PICU then, and a short stay on a regular floor til we go home. Like they say, we are all working on Vivian's time schedule--she's in charge!
We are enjoying a visit from our nephew Zach today too!
Thank you for your prayers.
